Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes his crop of young British talent can go on to match the feats that were achieved by Manchester United’s ‘class of 92’.
The Red Devils had the likes of; David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Gary and Phil Neville, as well as Ryan Giggs, all come up through the youth-team around the same time and they then went on to become Old Trafford legends.
The two sides meet today in Manchester with Arsenal holding an eight point lead over the current champions, and Wenger believes his current crop of players could go on and match what United’s did throughout the 90s and early 00s.
“United had an exceptional group together – the two Neville brothers, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt,” Wenger said.
“I would say this group is as successful as Manchester United’s group of players were.”
He added: “We have to show that and we have an opportunity to do that – no-one can stop you if you have quality and attitude.”
Wenger is confident the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs and Wojciech Szczesny, who came through the youth ranks can help lead The Gunners to silverware.
